Where We Ate: Arona, Italy

Ristorante Il Calicanto

I'll start this entry by saying that Arona--or at least the part of it that we saw--was not what we expected in terms of dining. I thought that there were going to be lots of restaurants on the water. Maybe it was the side of town where we parked or what happened to be open on a Sunday. However, the waterfront options we saw consisted of stands where you could buy fried foods or lemonade. We wanted something a bit nicer for our last night in Italy, so we headed away from the water and found Calicanto a few blocks away.

Calicanto has no view of Lake Maggiore, but it is pleasant, located in a big house with gardens. There is outdoor seating as well. Trains pass nearby, but the gardens help muffle the sounds and hide them from view.

My daughter and I enjoyed our pizzas, and the heart shape was a bonus for her.
We also liked the desserts that we tried.
